In a Twitter post that got a lot of attention from people who loved her for it, Kim made it clear that immigrants are not the major problem in the United States.
Kim tweeted a response to Trump’s order to block all people coming to the States from seven countries including; Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen from entering the country for 90 days.
In the tweet, Kim shared a brief overview of statistics of the cause of deaths in America. The responses she got were more of appreciation for enlightening her fans. They praised her for using her celebrity status to speak out on the matter.
Below are some of the appreciative responses on Kim’s views about Trump’s immigration ban;

Notwithstanding, some Tweeter users hit back at the reality TV star whose husband, rapper Kanye West seems to be a Trump supporter. They referred her to Kanye’s recent meeting with Trump in December.

But, trust some ardent supporters to rally behind the star. They quickly shut those responses down by highlighting that Kim is an independent woman. In other words, she has the right to her own opinion irrespective of what her husband thinks.
